More bash completion help for perldoc

Yesterday’s posting got a fair bit of response. Among other feedback, I had some feature requests from Offer Kaye in my email today.

So now perldoc-complete will complete built-in Perl functions if you’ve typed perldoc -f (try it with eg. perldoc -f ch<Tab>) and it will also complete Perl’s documentation pages – although for uncluttering’s sake, it will hide the list if you’ve merely typed perldoc <Tab>.

Share and enjoy.


Just installed it on my Ubuntu box and it works like a charm. Thank you :)

Brilliant. Thanks to both you and Yannick.

This is exactly feature I was going to ask for after seeing your previous post. Thanks.
